Why even if they disagree, members of any government must support government policy

There is a lot of fuss right now on twitter over why leading members of any government support a government motion when they don’t agree.  Boris Johnson and Michael Gove think nurses particularly deserve a pay rise, but both of them voted in favour of keeping the cap on private sector wages.
